When hiring a company that will come over and extract every dirt particle, fungal spore and bacterium from your carpet, there are a few things that can be rather useful to keep in mind. This goes double for those that are hiring such service providers for the first time in their lives so far, since the results can often be unexpected and while this does not automatically mean that they have done a bad job suffice it to say that it is not exactly impossible either.
The first thing to know about humble carpet cleaning companies is that you would need to dry your rug once they leave because of the fact that the steam cleaning they would perform would obviously make it a little bit too wet. If you notice a bad smell following carpet cleaning, this doesn’t indicate that your service provider made a mistake due to the reason that wet carpets can develop unpleasant odors if they are not properly dried. Hence, try not to frantically call them up if you smell something of this sort, because your carpet likely has a bit more drying left to do.
Another thing to take note of regarding carpet cleaning and restoration companies is that they very rarely use shampoos. This might run contrary to your perceptions of these service providers, because you likely assumed that surfactants will be vital tools in their toolkit, but the thing about steam cleaning is that it is effective enough that the use of surfactants may end up being downright counterproductive. That means that a service provider that doesn’t use soap or shampoo likely knows what they are doing.
